Paid Registrations | XenForo 2 Addon

Paid Registrations

3X Your Forum's Revenue
Accept User Upgrade Payments / Paid Subscriptions During Registration

What is it?

How many paid subscriptions are you losing each month because your users don't know the benefits of purchasing a user upgrade? Do they even know they can upgrade?

Would it hurt to make more $$$ each month?

Introducing Paid Registrations, an absolute must-have for forums that offer paid subscriptions.

Once installed, the registration flow will go from:
  1. User visits the registration page
  2. User fills the registration form and submits
  3. Registration is complete
  1. User visits the registration page
  2. Account types are presented in an elegant way and user chooses one (screenshot)
    • If a paid user upgrade is selected
      • User is redirected to the payment page
      • After payment is complete, the user is redirected to the registration form
    • If no upgrade is selected, the user is redirected to the registration form
  3. Registration is complete
New Feature Added By Popular Demand: You can now also enable the elegant display in the account upgrade page for registered members. (see screenshots)

Can you use this addon to make your forum "paid only"?
- Yes! This can easily be configured.​

You have full control over which user upgrades are presented, display order, color, the amount per row, etc...

It integrates with the payment profiles you already have, so setup is a breeze.

We currently support PayPal and Stripe, though more payment providers will be added in the future.

How does it benefit you?

3. Premium - 1 Year (non-recurring)

6. Premium - 1 Year (recurring)

You can set them as aliases and the user can easily pick and choose.
